Looking for a good read? Might we suggest Max Firestone’s The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss, out today from Hachette?
To learn more, you can check out the trailer above or head over to Max’ Ask Me Anything, where the author himself is explaining what to expect from his geeky new novel:
It’s the story of a hard-on-her-luck millennial hired to recover a stolen weapon—a digital spear from an MMO called “Kingdoms of Zoth”. Dahlia takes the case, thinking it’s going to be easy money for a geek like herself. But things take a tough turn when her client shows up dead—stabbed by a 3D printed replica of the very weapon she was looking for.
It’s an adventure that mixes a lot of my favorite things—video games, cosplay, whodunits, and Doctor Who references—all into one ridiculous and teetering package.
